Re: MS Office for Mac & Scrivener

Thanks, Druid! I did a search for track changes and all kinds of posts came up. I'm going through them now.

I'm not anti-PC, but I'd rather not spend the extra money if I don't need to, nor do I want to put memory and disk intensive software on the Mac if it isn't necessary.

MS Office for Mac & Scrivener

I ran into the inevitable snag today - file compatibility and feature issues. I sent my crit partner two chapters of a new WIP. I compiled the MS in Scriv, saved it to a .doc file, and emailed it from mac mail. While she was able to open it on her PC, it gave her a message that the file couldn't be ...

Re: Search and highlight?

Outstanding! I find it quite helpful in rooting out weak verbs or overused words/phrases.

Search and highlight?

Still getting used to Scriv - so far, I love it. I've imported the entire outline of one book, and am using it to start another from scratch.

Silly question, though: can Scriv automatically highlight words found on a search? That would be incredibly useful.

Re: New here - Questions on MS Word version

Wock - yes, makes perfect sense. I think I'd prefer to pipe the file over to the pc (for now, at least). I work with VM ware at work, and I shudder to think of doing such a thing to my brand new Mac PowerBook Pro, LOL! (just got it last night). If I must, I'd break down and buy the MS 2007 for Mac. ...

Re: New here - Questions on MS Word version

Thanks, Anthony! I'll ask about special offers. I'm probably buying from Apple, not sure yet. I don't really mind opening it on the PC and making sure it's okay. Funny thing is, I work on PCs for a living, and I really want a Mac to write my next novel. Long story there, LOL! What a pain it was to w...

New here - Questions on MS Word version

I'm purchasing a Mac laptop - and of course, Scrivener (which I think I'm more excited about than the Mac, :lol: ). I do want to make the best impression possible on agents/editors. Forgive me if this has been asked. I did find a post that emphasizes to use MS Word - always, always, always - in orde...
